Sometime during Thanksgiving week (next week) I will upgrade the build
machine, so it could be off line most of next week. I don't think that =
impact anyone but if it does please let me know ASAP. The new configura=
will look something like this:
Host OS: Fedora 8
VMware Server 1.03
All the current guest VMs will be migrated.
There will be some changes in the way that developer access the machine=
the web interface for requesting builds will remain the same.
One new thing I have finally figured out is how to get VNC to give a us=
the standard Fedora login screen when you first connect. That means I c=
create accounts for all the developers that want one and you can log on=
the server using your own account through VNC. This should allow you to=
also use VMware Server remotely using your own account.
Note: the VMware web site posted a major new version of VMware Server t=
(2.0 beta 1). The proposed release date for this version is the first h=
of 2008 so I do not believe we can wait that long to get the Build Mach=
upgraded. Once I get the Build Machine upgraded I will set up another t=
server and evaluate the new VMware Server 2.0.
